Ever hear of something called periodontal disease? Well it’s no joke! Believe it or not, periodontal disease and diabetes are a two way street. With diabetes increasing the risk for periodontitis, and periodontal inflammation causing negative affects on controlling your blood sugar, its crucial you visit the dentists for regular teeth cleanings and check ups. It’s recommended every 6 months, but I go every 4. You can’t be to careful. Maintain your teeth and gums by regular brushing and flossing. I’m not gonna lie, I don’t floss everyday but definitely a few times a week. With that said if you ever have a sore or experiencing bleeding of the gums call your dentist. You do NOT want an infection in your mouth or in your gums. That is all kinds of bad in more ways than one. Keep that grill clean!

I know we all have our ups and downs with blood sugars but the better it’s controlled the better your overall health will be! Don’t forget to smile! Smiles are contagious. 😃
I’d rather be the one who smiles the the one who doesn’t smile back…
